How Netflix Works

Screenshot 2014-04-21 at 12.58.19 PMOne of the Netflix FAQ’s asks “How does Netflix work?” It works like this:

1) Go to the website and login to your account.
2) Search for the movie you want to see.
3) Netflix tells you that movie is unavailable for streaming but you can get it from Netflix on DVD. 
4) Drive to Redbox and rent it for $1 or check Xfinity on Demand to see what it costs to watch instantly.
(optional step 5) Keep paying Netflix every month, and wonder why?

 I know it costs money to license films for online streaming. Which is why Netflix sells memberships instead of giving them away. Here’s an idea: IF NETFLIX WOULD QUIT BUYING A THOUSAND DVD’S EVERY TIME A NEW MOVIE COMES OUT THEY WOULD HAVE MORE MONEY.
You know who used to buy DVD’s and rent them out? Blockbuster.
